Graduate Field of Biophysics

Multidisciplinary training at the intersection of physics and biology

    The research focus of the Field of Biophysics is to uncover the fundamental physical and biological principles that govern all forms of life. Understanding these biological systems and their complex processes requires exquisitely detailed knowledge of molecular structures and functions.
